In 17th century Japan there once lived a poet named Matsuo Basho, who authored some of the most evocative, transcendent, and occasionally humorous poetry ever written. Working primarily in the haiku form, his words resonate even today with their imagery, depth, and delicate touch. One of his more famous quotes was this: "A good poem is one in which the form of the verse and the joining of its parts seem light as a shallow river flowing over its sandy bed." With my latest album,...

One of the aspects of electronic music that I appreciate most is the freedom to experiment, to pursue whatever music seems right at the time.  After all, it is about the love for the art, which to me really means that it is about having fun with what one creates.  With this in mind, in 2014 I decided to attempt an album of downtempo electronica, with a liberal dash of Berlin School style sequences, one that openly embraced rhythm, melody, and percussion.  And certainly, with the strong...

Recently, Darrell Burgan began composing ambient music under the Palancar pseudonym again after a period of some quiet. Where his previous release, Counting Raindrops  was a subdued study of reflection and emotion, his latest release Shani hearkens back to his fascination with the planets of our solar system. In his previous planetary releases, Darrell focused on Mars with Elysium Planitia , and on Earth's moon with Serenitatis . With Shani , Darrell pays a visit to one of the most mysterious...

Sometime a few years ago, Scott Turner (of Not Your Average Hippy) and Darrell Burgan (of Palancar) decided to take a weekend off, travel to a lovely retreat by the water, and spend a few days immersing themselves as deeply as possible in some ambient music composition.  While these two artists had worked on projects together before, these face to face sessions struck a chord deep within each of them. The music that came from these sessions seemed to them to be exactly what their ambient music...

It is precisely that honor that we have today, with this majestic new release called "Singularity". This magnificent two-disc album was recorded live the evening of November 6...

earman114 - Christopher Costabile - The Grand Hotel Abyss Earth Mantra is proud to welcome another artist to our netlabel, this time Florida-based experimental artist Christopher Costabile and his intriguing new album "The Grand Hotel Abyss".
